Janna and Metalhead Ned Ditch Work to Sample Buffalo Wild Wing’s Chicken Wing Entries [Video]

It kind of felt like we were cutting class when Metalhead Ned and I took off from work in the middle of the afternoon to go eat wings at Buffalo Wild Wings on Alpine.

Sometimes it's weird being adult: We ditched work early to go sample awesome wings at Buffalo Wild Wings for King of the Wing, and it was totally OK!
